Potato Dumplings

Potato Dumplings

Here’s another timeless recipe right out of my grandmother’s recipe box. This is a great side for that ‘Meat and Potato’ meal you’ve got on the menu…

Potato Dumplings
3 large potatoes, peeled & cubed
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
dash or two nutmeg
butter (optional)

Place the potatoes in a pot of salted cold water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until tender (~10 mintues). Drain. Mash the potatoes and spread on a baking sheet to cool. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs.

Add the cooled potatoes, flour, salt and nutmeg to the eggs. Mix with a wooden spoon until a heavy dough forms. If too wet add a little more flour.

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon. Optional: Heat a few tablespoons of butter in a skillet on medium high. Gently sautΓ© the cooked dumplings in the butter until coated on all sides. Serve hot. You can also top these dumplings with your favorite gravy. Delicious!
